2020 has been full of twists and turns. It has been “the year” for adapting and reinventing! And it has also been filled with new opportunities. Opportunities to experiment and explore new design ideas! A few weeks back, I was invited by @shannonwellingtonweddings to contribute to her editorial shoot, to be held at the beautiful @loch_aerie_mansion The shoot would be photographer by Erin, from @graceandardor It only took me a second glancing to her inspiration board to say: Of course I’m on board! Shannon put together an A-list team and we pitched our ideas to @modluxweddingsphl We were over the moon when we heard that they not only would feature our shoot, but one of Erin’s gorgeous pics would make the cover of the Spring 2021 Issue!

Sugar Realm, Philadelphia Wedding Cakes, Main line Wedding Cakes. The face behind the cakes...literally! Philadelphia magazine.
The face behind the cakes, literally! Humbled to see this article in the latest issue of @phillymag . Thank you so much for including me. The article features 8 local women, (including myself) who share their self-care secrets! At 47, I own every wrinkle and every gray! I try to live each day fully and more important than anything, try to spend a few minutes at the end of the day to recharge, be grateful and organize my thoughts! Cheers to 47 more, surrounded by cakes, family and friends! LOVE this photo captured by @davemoserphoto
As seen in the las test issue of @philawedding . Totally humbling to be featured in their beutiful pages! Loved reading the way they described of my work!
Sugar Realm, With Gratitude to past and present clients. Philadelphia Wedding Cakes. Main Line Wedding Cakes.
As I prepare to gather with my family at the thanksgiving table, I would like to take a minute to express my gratitude to past and present clients, who have invited me to celebrate with them important moments in their lives. Please know that your enthusiasm about my work, your words of praise and your kindness has made me feel fulfilled, appreciated, and with purpose. You will always have a special place in my sugar kingdom. With gratitude, ileana.

I love having a small role in my client's special occasions. Making sugar flowers is a personal favorite. Yes, they take FORERVER to make, and yes, I love every minute of it. It's interesting to me, that when you create a new sugar flower, you can impart them with certain personality. Think of a Rose, it can be a Romantic Rose, a Modern Rose, a High Couture Rose, a Formal Rose...each one with a specific aesthetic and appeal!
Over these 10 years of business, I have safaely removed sugar flowers from many, many cakes and I have boxed them for my clients. Often times they are preserved by the bride, mother-of-the-bride and even grandmothers!. From all the boxes I have used in the past, this is my very favorite one. When kept away from direct sun light and moisture, these flowers can be preserved indefinitely!
“Choose what you love, and be the best at it”. This was one of my many thoughts during my flight back from Seattle, after dropping my daughter off at College. I designed this business around my kids, among other reasons, because it allowed me the flexibility to be present, to be there. I can’t wait to see all the places my daughter (and this business) will continue to go!
“No one can whistle a Symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it” H. E. Luccock. A most beautiful collaboration with talented PA & NJ wedding vendors.
One year ago, my husband, teenage kids, my business, and I moved to Philadelphia. It was a leap of faith, and a commitment to team effort. We have all adapted well, and put our best foot forward. All progress takes place outside the comfort zone. It was specially sweet to find in my mailbox today a copy of @modluxweddingsphl. Having this magazine in my hands means so much. We are SO happy to be here Philly. Thank you for treating us well!
All good things come in pairs!
Swooning over our feature in the latest issue of @modluxweddingsphl It is a dream come true to see Cindy & Drew’s wedding cake featured in the beautiful pages of this magazine.

Cheers to the city of brotherly love!!! @switzercindy26 the seeetest bride in the world, thank you for letting me have a small role in your wedding @leahbarryphotography Crazy gorgeous photography, thank you for making this happening!
